Bible
Psalms 42:1-11
Luke 4:38-44

Psalms
42:1 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.
42:2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
42:3 My tears have been my food day and night, while men say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
42:4 These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go with the multitude, leading the procession to the house of God, with shouts of joy and thanksgiving among the festive throng.
42:5 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and
42:6 my God. My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Hermon–from Mount Mizar.
42:7 Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.
42:8 By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me–a prayer to the God of my life.
42:9 I say to God my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?”
42:10 My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
42:11 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Luke
4:38 Jesus left the synagogue and went to the home of Simon. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her.
4:39 So he bent over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up at once and began to wait on them.
4:40 When the sun was setting, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them.
4:41 Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew he was the Christ.
4:42 At daybreak Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them.
4:43 But he said, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.”
4:44 And he kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea.
